This book is a compilation of articles by eminent scholars and thinkers who throw up various important issues that put contemporary India in perspective and encourage the reader to examine our educational, economic and cultural milieu.
At the turn of the century it is essential to look back at the years and objectively analyze the economic and socio-political conditions we have lived in. It is time to give up that disillusioned acceptance of the world and instead delve into our existing reality to find solutions for the time to come.
Discussing the development of the nation in the context of the fifty years after independence, these essays in the book focus on a variety of issues which are dealt with in three sections : Economics, Education and Culture. The national accounts data, dimensions of class conflicts, the cooperative sector, modern literature, new concepts of education, the emerging trends in cultural life and an account of the publishing industry in India, all come together under this wide canvas.
